Juanita (Mom) was very good to me, my husband Dave and our children, Amanda and Ryan. Unfortunately, she was not able to really know our grandson, Ryan Joseph, son of Amanda. She was always loving and caring to me after I became a part of the family. LOVED Sunday dinners at their house while dating Dave. While married to Dave’s dad (Pop) she was warm and showed great affection to both of our children while they were growing up and ALWAYS treated me as if I was one of her own daughters. We always knew we were welcomed. I have many fond memories and she will be missed by all that came in contact with her. Hugs and prayers!
Juanita had a big heart and took on a lot when she married Dad. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed taking care of her whole family. Although I was not at home for very long when Juanita and Dad married, I never had to worry that he was not being taken care of and loved. She was Maama to my kids and we will never forget her.
